Action to save in original directory - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

I have many folders containing .psd files that I work on. The last step is to flatten the image and save as a .pdf in 12 quality to it's unique folder. I recorded the action to do this, but when I run it, it saves the file to the folder I had open when I recorded the action. How do I get the action to save the .pdf in the folder it was opened from?...

    If you are not batching this, toggle the Save As PDF action's dialog to ON. This will prompt you for a directory (and filename).

    If you ARE batching it, keep the dialog toggled off, and check the box that says "Ignore Save As Information" in the batch dialog box - that way, whatever you put in for file name and destination will be passed to the Batch dialog.

    I'm not batching, and I have tried the dialog box. That works fine, except I get the dialog box for the jpeg quality immediatly after. That kinda defeats the purpose, as the action now only saves me 2 keystrokes. Is the script for the action editable, and if so, where is it stored? Thanks for the Help!!
